SleepVance KIDS generally has a low side-effect profile even when used for extended periods of time. SleepVance KIDS may increase the drowsiness caused by prescription sleeping and tranquilising drugs, opiate containing painkillers, alcohol, and narcotic containing street drugs. Gastrointestinal side effects, including abdominal fullness and nausea have been reported when taken on an empty stomach. It is therefore recommended that SleepVance KIDS be taken with meals.
SleepVance KIDS contains a unique blend of plant-derived (phytochemical) ingredients that help to promote healthy sleep patterns, increase sleep quality, combat inattention, and alleviate the daytime consequences of sleep deprivation. There are various hormones, vitamins, nutrients (i.e micro and macro) involved in the natural sleep cycle. SleepVance kids aims to tackle each of these individual components by adopting a holistic approach designed to rectify the underlying nutrient and hormonal deficiencies associated with the majority of sleeping disorders.
Each of the individual active ingredients contained in SleepVance KIDS have been scientifically proven to act on one or more of the complex pathways involved in the sleep cascade.
Yes, SleepVance kids can be used in combination with other prescription medication such as Ritalin, Concerta, Strattera and other prescription concentration and memory remedies. Our experience has shown an improved outcome of individuals who use such a combination. Please do not discontinue the use of your chronic prescription medication without the consent of your doctor. We advise against replacing any prescription medication with SleepVance kids. For individuals who are not on any sleeping/concentration/attention aids, SleepVance kids can be taken on its own to combat sleep deprivation and the complications brought upon by it.
During the initial phase which usually takes about 3 – 6 months, we recommend 1-2 SleepVance kids tablets daily (depending on your child’s age) with meals with a snack or after a meal an hour to two before bed. SleepVance kids is none-habit forming and compatible with most chronic medication and as such can be used for as long as required.
The levels of several hormones fluctuate according to the light and dark cycle and are also affected by sleep, feeding, and general behaviour. The regulation and metabolism of several hormones are influenced by interactions between the effects of sleep and the intrinsic circadian system; growth hormone, melatonin, cortisol, leptin, and ghrelin levels are highly correlated with sleep and circadian rhythmicity. There are also endogenous circadian mechanisms that serve to regulate glucose metabolism and similar rhythms pertaining to lipid metabolism, regulated through the actions of various clock genes. Sleep disturbance, which negatively impacts hormonal rhythms and metabolism, is also associated with obesity, insulin insensitivity, diabetes, hormonal imbalance, and appetite dysregulation. Circadian disruption, typically induced by shift work, may negatively impact health due to impaired glucose and lipid homeostasis, reversed melatonin and cortisol rhythms, and loss of clock gene rhythmicity.
Unlike most sedatives and tranquilisers, SleepVance kid doesn’t just ‘knock you out’ but rather tackles this complex issue at a molecular level thus resetting your biological clock and restoring your normal cycle. SleepVance kids is the only product that contains Somnum-X, a scientific blend of carefully selected natural ingredients designed to restore your circadian rhythm as well as tackle various sleep related illnesses without causing any notable side-effects.
We recommend not taking SleepVance kids on an empty stomach and as such suggest that if it has been more than 3 hours after your last meal, you take your SleepVance kids with a light snack instead. Unlike most sedatives and antihistamines, SleepVance kids does not cause your typical hangover/groggy the next morning. We do however recommend taking SleepVance kids in time to ensure that you have at least 6 – 8 hours before you need to be up.
The most common types of sleep disorders are:
SleepVance kids is scientifically formulated to address each or a combination of any of these ailments making it your perfect natural remedy to combat sleep related disorders.
The relationship between attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and sleep is a complex one which poses many challenges in clinical practice.
Studies of sleep disturbances in children with academic and behavioural problems have underscored the role that primary sleep disorders play in the clinical presentation of symptoms of inattention and behavioural dysregulation. In addition, recent research has shed further light on the prevalence, type, risk factors for, and impact of sleep disturbances in children with ADHD.
It has been noted that sleep disturbances make ADHD symptoms worse in affected children and adolescents or even result in ADHD-like behaviours. As such, it is important to consider treatment of sleep problems in children and adolescents with ADHD. Improving sleep quality has the potential to reduce ADHD problems and to have a positive impact on everyday life of the affected individuals, as well as their families. SleepVance kids is formulated to address these issues at their point of origin while simultaneously addressing sleep deprivation and its complications thereof.
People suffering from sleep deprivation typically exhibit one or more of the following symptoms.
No, SleepVance kids can be used by children and adults (above 8 years of age) suffering from any of the following conditions or symptoms:
Research has actually shown that the scientific natural ingredients contained in SleepVance kids are particularly beneficial to both ADD and ADHD patients.
SleepVance kids can be taken with most prescription medications however there are a few notable interactions:
Yes, SleepVance kids has a Nappi code, which means that the medical aid will pay for it provided that you have a medical aid savings option with available savings.
Accumulating evidence from both epidemiologic studies and well-controlled laboratory studies indicates that chronic partial sleep loss may increase the risk of obesity and weight gain. Recent studies in both adults and children have shown that sleep restriction results in metabolic and endocrine alterations, including decreased glucose tolerance, decreased insulin sensitivity, increased evening concentrations of cortisol, increased levels of ghrelin, decreased levels of leptin and increased hunger and appetite. Altogether, the evidence points to a possible role of decreased sleep duration in the current epidemic of obesity. Bedtime extension in short sleepers should be explored as a novel behavioural intervention that may prevent weight gain or facilitate weight loss. Avoiding sleep deprivation may help to prevent the development of obesity, particularly in children.
Research has shown that poor sleep may contribute to worse outcomes in people with diabetes. Poor sleep quality in people with diabetes is closely associated with bad control of blood glucose levels. Generally, people who have a hard time controlling their blood glucose levels have a greater risk of complications, have a reduced quality of life, and consequently a reduced life expectancy.
Yes, you can. If you are on medicines such as warfarin to prevent blood clots, SleepVance kids may however increase bleeding potential and regular blood monitoring is therefore recommended. We recommend that you consult your Doctor or Pharmacist if you are on any blood thinning medication.
